RIP Bo.  You being in TN and me in AL we had discussed meeting up.   Shame that we did not make it happen.  Intent was good and idea stayed alive... guess we were busy / preoccupied with life.  You are now young and healthy again and forever.  Thoughts and prayers for all the familiy(s) in their adjustment to the lack of your presence.... but you will be living within them and all will be together again.

This is very sad news. Bo was part of my fondest high school memories and I am so grateful I got to be his friend and swim teammate. We had so much fun chasing rabbits, drinking bad things, double dating, getting caught sneaking  in drive ins, seeing how much air our cars could get over bumps at 80 mph and on and on. Mooning the city of San Angelo on the team bus. Our relay team going to state. Our summers were the greatest. He was so friendly and had a great personality, never met a stranger. I can tell from his posts on this site he had a wonderful family that he adored and was so proud of. RIP my friend, I'll miss you
